paul ryan of our budget committee, eric cantor, john boehner, you wouldn't have them singing out of the same hymnal if we are retreating. we have never been more unified behind a position than we are now. i feel pretty confident we're going to pass this today. what this really is is moving away from playing small ball, cutting $100 billion here, 100 bmds there. we're running multitrillion dollar deficits. we've gone from $10 trillion in debt to $16 trillion in debt in the first four years of this presidency, and we now recognize we got to save this president from himself, and we're not going to do it by nickel and diming every two months, three months, four months. we've got to lay out the vision for america that we have, how do we save ourselves from a debt crisis, and force the senate to put forward their view of how we save ourselves from a debt crisis. let the senate lay out its tax proposals. let the senate lay out its entitlement reforms if they have them. and then we can have an adult conversation once the senate passes its budget and the house passes its budget. >> right.
